Even the icons! But it doesn’t show the URL… surf does:

Issuing surf -x makes it echo the window id.

Issuing xprop -id 14680067 -f _SURF_URI 8s -set _SURF_URI http://duckduckgo.com should make it go to that URL, if I understood everything correctly, but it does not.

Alternatively, echo "http://duckduckgo.com" | xclip and then C-p works.
